To our fellow fun N. Americans:

Please allow me to streeeetch for a second. Years ago freestyle wonder woman Debbie Deb sang in her hit Lookout Weekend:

“Jumping music, slick deejays, fog machines and laser rays

Lookout weekend cause, here I come
Because weekends were made for fun

I work hard, everyday, its all work and no play
With the boss on my back, he don’t give me any slack
I sit down, I daydream of how my weekends gonna be

Lookout weekend cause, here I come
Because weekends were made for fun”

I think what Miss Deb describes above is much like seeing a Ponytail show…its a release, a party, a cathartic getaway from the life around you. I have laid witness to Ponytail over and over, and the feeling never dwindles and the sounds never dull. Their faces are always illuminating and it transfers to your heart and grins. Your world is the now and it feels amazing. Its the sheeeezbaum!

So maybe its not exactly the weekend, and maybe Ponytail doesn’t have laser rays, but who the hell doesn’t want fun?
See you there.
